Originally started as a side project with the members from Torso Murder/Orwellian(Mark), Khai/All In(Joe) and Psyclosarin(Ian). Took a couple years but we finally got the debut Ep done.
2.Recently you have released an ep, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical styles you went for on the recording?
Really we were just trying to be as original sounding as possibly with still letting our individual influeces shine through. Noreen brought in all the clean vocals with the symphonic metal singing sound on parts; Mark added a melodic death metal and blackmetal feel; Joe added groove and melodic metal guitars; with Ian showing his blackmetal and death metal blast beats pounding away.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band has explored so far with the music?
The title track Our Last Midnight is about the rise of machines to the point the eliminate all humans that they see as a virus. The breakdown in this song is pretty epic. Overall the songs are a pre-apocalyptic warning.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Inherently Lost'?
After a year of jamming together in between our other projects started some hard brain storming. I was reading a lot about Sigmund Freud's theorys about how humans Inherently know how to do things straight out of the womb. Mixed with other days thinking about humans being programmed to consume and then bam! Narrated like the begining of a scifi movie "In an world filled with endless consumption, there is no wonder why, We are all Inherently Lost" just popped in my head.
5.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the ep cover?
The artwork was inspired by images of the nebulus galaxy's that NASA released. With the Inherently Lost (IL) symbol. Being a metal band we were looking for different imagery versus the normal doom and gloom metal ideas.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance? 7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
With being a side project we only managed few shows last year together in Inherently Lost. However once this Covid-19 pandemic calms down we are getting on track for a string of dates hopefully.
8.The ep was released on 'Entwined Recordings', can you tell us a little bit more about this label?
Entwined Recordings is Mark's independant record label and music production studio. Since there is no need for Major labels these days; Orginally only a recording studio, he decided to fully dive in to music marketing with the same name. They had a couple releases with different bands over the years, one of which included Joe's old band Khai.
9.On the ep you also did a cover of Cradle Of Filth's "Nymphatamine", what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?
The main drive was that it was dark, heavy, and 50/50 on clean/heavy vocals. Along with never hearing anyone else covering, it was the perfect song for us.
10.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of symphonic, black and death metal?
Pretty positive so far. You'll always have metal "elitists" that hate anything the isnt a carbon copy of a specific scene. You know the type "Its not kvlt, I hate clean vocals, I hate keyboards, etc." We are not playing music for them. We are playing for ouselves.
11.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We are going to record 1 more Ep then follow it up with a full length. We are still continuing to evolve, right now it feels we are in the post-black metal, melodic death metal area. I can see some doom type riffage in our near future.
12.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Influences? Really too many to list but to just pick a handful; Epica, Lacuna Coil, Gojira, Heaven Shall Burn, Cradle of Filth, & Dimmu Borgir.
We are listening to new releases by Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, Code Orange, Heaven Shall Burn, Tool, Insomnium, and Cattle Decapitation
13.What are some of your non musical interests?
Traveling, Craft Beer, Wine, Mortal Kombat, Scifi,Horror shows and Art Museums
